Raiders win

The men's and women's basketball teams from Central Lakes College defeated their Fond du Lac oponents Wed., Jan. 27 on the home court in Brainerd. The men won, 74-45, led by Nick Grewe's 10 points and 15 rebounds. Milos Prijovic added15 points, Yasin Jama 11, and Cody Hofmann 10. CLC's seventh straight victory lifted the Raiders to a Northern Division-leading 6-0 mark and to 16-3 overall. The CLC women won, 86-45, behind Cassie Pearson's 26 points. Trisha Wippler added 16 points and Carlee Davich tallied 14. A boost for the Raiders was their lack of turnovers - just 10 on the night for a team that has struggled. The teams travel to Hibbing for games Saturday, where the women start at 1 p.m. and the men play at 3 p.m. The final two home games of the regular season are Feb. 5 vs. Mesabi Range and Feb. 6 vs. Vermilion.
